Synthetic triacylated lipopeptide - TLR1/2
Synthetic triacylated lipopeptide
Pam3CSK4 is a synthetic triacylated lipopeptide (LP) that mimics the acylated amino terminus of bacterial LPs.
Pam3CSK4 is a potent activator of the proinflammatory transcription factor NF-κB.
Activation is mediated by the TLR2/TLR1 heterodimer, which recognizes LPs with three fatty acids, a structural characteristic of bacterial LPs.Back to the top

Bacterial lipoproteins are a family of proinflammatory cell wall components found in both Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria.
The stimulatory activity of bacterial lipoproteins resides in their acylated amino terminus. Pam3CSK4 is a synthetic tripalmitoylated lipopeptide that mimics the acylated amino terminus of bacterial lipoproteins.
Pam3CysSerLys4 (Pam3CSK4) is a potent activator of the proinflammatory transcription factor NF-κB .
Recognition of Pam3CSK4 is mediated by TLR2 which cooperates with TLR1 through their cytoplasmic domain to induce the signaling cascade leading to the activation of NF-κB .
